Exposing Rwanda’s Truth Denials

Posted on the 15 October 2014 by Therisingcontinent @Ambrosenz

For more than twenty four years, millions of people from the Great Lakes region, namely Ugandans, Rwandans, Congolese and Burundians have died and their survivors suffered in silence from official narratives driven by external interests and of course direct beneficiaries of atrocities committed to control territories and minerals beneath their grounds.

And when a global media of the status of BBC dares revealing untold sides of the story, those who benefited from the misery of the African victims now come out loud attacking fiercely the broadcaster for having uncovered and shown on television part of the hidden truth that has been for so long deliberately hidden to protect their interests or those of their masters.

I am giving you for your own appreciation here the BBC TWO Documentary – Rwanda Untold Story [the film accused of denying the Rwandan official narrative] and a letter written by a number of western pro-Kagame intellectuals who are among the accusers.

Among those so called 38 scholars I have written about or met 4 of them for different reasons. Either their interests in the atrocities crossed my concerns in a particular way. These are Linda Melvern, Jean-Francois Dupaquier, Dr. Phil Clark, Richard Jonhson.

I sat with Clark in a television/discussion panel about peace in Rwanda and Eastern Congo. He published a book on Gacaca justice system which is prefaced by Paul Kagame.

If you are one of the millions of victims of Paul Kagame living either in Rwanda, Uganda, DRC, Europe, America or elsewhere, or simply a citizen of the world with empathy for the suffering caused, please could you take a few minutes to write a message of support to BBC for uncovering the truth through their documentary?

You can find the link to contact BBC here. In less than 3 minutes, and 3 lines consisting of 300 syllables, you can help restore the truth of the millions of our dead and those that Paul Kagame continues dumping in lakes, rivers, holes, prisons, etc even today. BBC needs all the support of all truth lovers from everywhere.
